By public, I mean places like Malls, Grocery Stores, Restaurants etc. These genres of Music you are most likely to hear out in public

The Top Ten

1 Pop

Ugh yes! And not even the good kind of pop plays, just the same mediocre to downright bad stuff. From school functions to a grocery store it's always the same stuff over and over again and it's so tiring having to listen to the same meh to bad music over and over again. It's worse when people sing along to these meh or terrible songs and honestly it's a little scary but hey that's just me I suppose. Either way, I'm just done with the mediocrity of modern music, just plain done. - Anonymousxcxc

That's why the busy ( Working ones I mean..) people don't bother to heed music in their life... - Ananya
